Our online mattress buying adventure started when our oldest son switched from a twin bed to a full size bed. I didn't want to spend a fortune on a mattress, so I did what any thrifty, rational shopper does, I hopped onto Amazon and started doing some research. After comparing prices and reviews, we ending up picking the Best Price Mattress 6-Inch Memory Foam Mattress. It had fantastic reviews, and a price of just over $100 made it a pretty quick choice.
These mattresses arrive at your door boxed and rolled tightly in plastic. All you do is place the sealed mattress unrolled on the bed frame, carefully cut the plastic, and then stand back and watch the magic happen. It doesn't take long for it to take shape, and it's ready to sleep on after a few hours. (There was a bit of a plastic smell, so we opted to let it air out overnight, and then put sheets on it.)
After testing his bed out, we decided that our queen size mattress needed the boot, and it was a no-brainer to get the same mattress again. We did choose to go with a thicker mattress for ours, and got the 10-inch memory foam mattress in a queen. Again, the price was right for us since we didn't want to empty the bank account for a mattress, it was right around $200, which is pretty amazing!
I even ended up picking up a new headboard too, so it felt like a whole new bed! We were more than ready for a good night's sleep again, and after a little over six months with the new memory foam mattress, I'm happy to say it's awesome!
It does take a week or so to get used to it if you are switching from a traditional mattress to a memory foam, but after that, it's so good! I love that it has that super cozy and soft feel when you climb in, but it gives great support while you sleep. The other great thing is that you almost don't feel the other person move all during the night. (This part has come in super handy when one of the kids asks me to lay with them until they fall asleep at night. I can easily get out of their bed after they have fallen asleep, and I don't disturb them at all!! You know that is a win for any parent fighting a bedtime battle!)
Would I buy this mattress again? Honestly, we already did! Our youngest son requested a new mattress not long after we bought ours, so now we all have a different variation of this same mattress since he got a twin size. I wouldn't even have to think twice about buying this mattress for myself again, even if it needed to be replaced sooner than a more expensive mattress, the price still makes it a better option in my book.
So, shopping online definitely took the headache out of mattress shopping for our family, and now hopefully this helps take away your headache from thinking about buying online the next time you need to upgrade your mattress!
